Drowning in plastic

I've seen this article on big oil's deception shared many times this past week. The lack of morality is maddening but as much as I blame those at the top, we're not helping at all as these visualisations show.

But when us consumers do the right thing, just look at what happens to the plastic that's "recycled", most of it is discarded or incinerated.

Solar Roof Tiles - should every building generate its own power?

Another example of where governments should be legislating to fight against pollution and climate change. It's frustratingly obvious how much better off we would be if we each generated the power we needed in a sustainable way.

Tesla roof tiles look brilliant, but there's an interesting comment about them in the video which mean that they might not be so viable in the UK. Certainly not our our roof, but the ones shown here look great.

How Big Oil misled the public into believing plastic would be recycled

Governments should be banning plastic packaging for new products and giving companies a few years to phase it out for existing products.

There should be a list of safe and acceptable materials that can be used for packaging and that's it.
